TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / February 22, 2023 / Gamelancer Media Corp. (CSE:GMNG) (OTCQB:GAMGF) (FRA:P93) ("Gamelancer" or the "Company") a leading media-production and entertainment company that creates custom short-form video content for brands, announces today that it has broadened the scope of its current media partnership with technology company, Snap Inc. With numerous popular short-form video programs currently hosted on Snapchat's Stories page (the 4th tab) within the Discover feed, Gamelancer Media aims to include additional programs and creator partnerships through the deepened engagement across its 29 Snapchat channels. With subscribers and revenues continually increasing, growing the existing partnership is a natural next step.
Snapchat's Stories page provides made-for-mobile content including shows, news reports, creator content and more. With a specific focus on producing short-form series that resonate with Gen Z and young Millennials, Gamelancer Media will expand upon its original content with new series and creators covering topics such as beauty, fashion, crime stories, cooking and more.
The Company's Snapchat Shows are popular OTT (over the top) short-form video programs that engage younger audiences. Gamelancer Media's total Snapchat presence sits at just over 3.7 million subscribers to date and generates over $440,000 in recurring monthly revenue across 23 channels. This is in addition to Gamelancer Media's core ad-sales business, as noted HERE in a press release dated December 12, 2022. Added programming along with 6 new channels, now a combined 29 channels, is anticipated to have a direct and positive impact on the Company's monthly OTT earnings.
Gamelancer Media offers expertise in building loyal and engaging online communities and as a modern media enterprise, the Company provides a unique opportunity for brands to create authentic connections with its extensive Gen Z and younger Millennial audiences through full-production and/or broadcasting opportunities across its owned and operated network of 44 social media channels. With over 37 million total followers and subscribers and over 2 billion monthly views across its combined social media platforms, brands have a unique advantage in making authentic connections with their desired demographic through custom branded short-form content that resonates with target audiences.
Snapchat boasts over 375 million daily users as of Q4, 2022, a 17 percent year over year (YoY) increase and recently announced that the platform reaches a global community of 750 million monthly active users. The technology company reaches over 75 percent of 13 to 34 year olds and 90 percent of 13 to 24 year olds in over 20 countries, including Canada. Snapchat draws a unique, mobile-first audience who gravitate toward engaging and short-form videos and partnered content, such as Spotlight and Stories, the former being the place within Snapchat that allows anyone to potentially reach a massive audience through a Snap. The app has seen over 100% increase in total time spent watching Spotlight content compared to Q4, 2021. Spotlight is available in more than 150 countries. With plans to increase market share in key global areas, Snapchat supports over 40 languages and has established important partnerships with major handset original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and local telecommunication companies.
"Snapchat's Stories page is the best way for the community to discover creative, diverse content from Canadian publishers and content partners around the world. We're excited to continue working with Gamelancer as they continue to build their presence, tapping into the unique and highly engaged audience on Snapchat, and grow to new and exciting levels in 2023," said Nader Mohamed, Media Partnerships Lead, Canada, at Snap Inc.
